The discrete level information deficiency requires usage of level density models in cross section calculations. The total reaction cross sections for gamma-induced reactions through the six level density models with a consistent parameterization of some lanthanides (^{141}Pr, ^{142}Nd, ^{144}Sm, ^{153}Eu, ^{159}Tb, ^{160}Gd, ^{165}Ho, ^{175}Lu) were calculated using TALYS 1.6 in the incident energy range from 5 to 30 MeV. All calculations from the present study were compared with each other and with data available in the literature. |
